The video album was produced by Kenya Autie. The song was released in June 2023 and was well received. ‘ What If We Changed the World’ is the starting line in the song. There is also a call to nurture Bajra, Makka Cholam and Ragi grains annually. The turning point came when Falguni visited Prime Minister Modi after winning the Grammy Award in 2022.

'A song on the concept of fighting hunger by embracing the power of music ' was PM Modi’s core idea, says Falguni.
